Mary’s Monstrosities at the Grand Rapids Comic Con 2015

Venetian Carnival Mask Maker Mary, of Mary’s Monstrosities, talks about her horror masks. We talk about the mask process, her approach to cosplay, 80s movies and Krampus. I, even, make fun of myself too.

Youmacon 2015

Youmacon is a popular culture event similar to most “Comic Cons”, however instead of focusing on comic books, Youmacon is a celebration of Japanese popular culture and its influence on our own culture over the past few decades. Common themes throughout the event are Anime (Japanese animation), Video Games, Japanese style artwork and comics, and the rising internet culture influenced by all of the above.

Youmacon brings a unique all-ages mix of interactive events, celebrity guest panels, and live musical performances to Downtown Detroit. One of its most popular events, “Live Action Mario Party”, emulates the video game experience – often filling the room to fire code capacity. Players participate in gameshow-like mini-games to help their teams advance and win.

Youmacon 2015 will be held October 29 – November 1 at two of the most iconic locations in Downtown Detroit: The world famous Cobo Center, and The Renaissance Center. Separating these locations is the beautiful Detroit Riverwalk.
